Are You Loving Waje’s Style? Promo Photos from the Soulful Star’s Debut Album – “Words Aren’t Just Enough”




‘I Wish’ words were just enough to show how “So Inspired” I am by vocal powerhouse Waje‘s music. Hoping to be her “Oko Mi’ one day, I’m so excited to announce that the stellar singer-songwriter will be dropping her debut this May 1st 2013.

While we await more details on one of Africa’s most highly awaited albums “Words Aren’t Just Enough” as to which producers and features may be on the album (I wonder if Omawumi will be on the bill), she leaves us with an intelligent pun – “Words aren’t just enough to describe the African Soul” and a few new elegant photos from her promo shoot.

      They aren’t that bad though, but I understand where you are coming from. Some of the eyebrows I see on naija celebrities r just shocking

    Are you kidding me? i don’t see anything wrong with her eyebrows. They look perfect to me. Anyway, everyone is left to her opinion.

    She can sing sha….But I’m not always carried away by all those “Edited,Airbrush,photoshop, glamorous, studio pic,splash on pages of Magazine and internet,which make some of us feel inconsequential! Then you will be in awe,when you see them life or sometime on TV….It make them look lean,with spot free skin tone…I’m still yet to recover from Kim K,visit to nigeria! She barely look 5ft for me…I’m not dissing on Waje in particular,just saying my mind.I snap with Nokia phone and look pretty!

      Me too. I won’t knock her hustle, it’s almost like you need to do these things to sell. Thank God she has talent to back it up 🙂

    My two complaints – 1. the first picture with the dark lipstick has a distracting back ground. 2. the pictures are edited to the point of making her look lifeless and like a mannequin. she is a pretty girl and there is not need for the excessive air brushing!

    Waje – your voice is real, refreshing, strong and bold. You should have kept your pictures the same way.

      Thank you!!!! I don’t see how people can look at these pictures and call it beautifu
      Waje is beautiful, but these pictures have been airbrushed to the max, they don’t do her justice. I love the first picture of her in the gold dress, but she looks like a toad in the others

    Omg, are you guys serious? these are her promo photos for goodness sake, it has to be edited to perfection! No where in the world will you see a music or movie promo shot that’s rough-looking. Name 1 artiste or actor that has released their promo shot raw and unedited. NONE, NOT 1. You guys…smh.
    Back to Waje, she looks amazing, and she’s got a great voice. I’ll most likely pick up the album. God bless her hustle.

    not a fan of “over” airbrushed pictures

  17. lmao

    April 19, 2013 at 9:38 pm

    She needs new everything. She’s too old to be trying to be so young in looks. Its not cute. Its not sexy. Waje start again. Your music is good but this whole thing you are forcing… PHOTOSHOP IS NOT ENOUGH. You are far from a sex kitten like Tiwa Emma and Seyi. So just stay in your lane. Lose weight. Hire a new stylist and makeup artist. And lets get this show going properly.

    And let me not start about that old ass wet and wavy curly dry s curl wig you wear as your crown. who told you? your people have definitely lied to you something awful. you mean you not only walked out of the house with it, but you actually allowed them to photgraph it and post it online to forever be seen? WORDS REALLY ARENT ENOUGH.

    You people, take it easy with the makeup. When yoy shade nd highlight a client’s face&its done properly, you have a photoshopped look in reality because the face will look slimmer. No doubts the pictures were worked on but it isnt dat bad. D MUA did aNice job &yes brows cud be beta.

    Lol that first pic of her in the gold dress is a huge joke!so photoshopped to loook skinny which she obviously isn’ is zero..make up not bad..she really needs a new stylist obviously..and I agree she’s too old to try out the fitting in thing…stand out just like your voice does..and hire new sets of hands for your image..too beautiful for this rubbish

    @ Chi Chi – Nobody is advocating that “rough” pictures should be released. Yes, pictures have to be touched up but when they manipulate the image to the point of making the subject look less than themselves, there in lies the issue. Removing a pimple or blemish, sure but removing personality? Na disaster be dat abeg. I have seen this girl perform, she is playful, funny and has more energy and vibrancy than these pictures suggest. The team should have stuck to creating a photoshoot to match her personality without trying to come off so staged. I agree with another poster, Waje shouldn’t try to aim for the Tiwa Savage appeal, she should be herself. The last two pictures make her look like she’s aiming for the Adult Contemporary 45 and over radio audience. She is pop R & B (Beyonce/J-Hud sound) NOT Adult R & B (Whitney Houston/Anita Baker).

    Just really glad that she’s coming out aggressive because she actually has the stuff. And commenters keep naming people who don’t have the stuff.
    Waje you go girl, airbrush dey go. Until the public learns to appreciate quality, she has to do this paint face stuff to sell.

    April 22, 2013 at 9:57 pm

    All those comparing her to Tiwa nd saying she’s old for all this stuff ,it’s just so funny bcos Tiwa is way older than waje.

    The babe is hot! I think you should sit down and make up ur mind about the image u want to project. Big n sexy is not bad, and u have a figure African men love so u got the raw materials. People go easy on the girl, what money can’t buy is what she already has, which is a Voice. Get a better stylist though.

    I’m really disappointed in everybody ranting about these photoshopped pictures. Rihanna & Beyonce pops up, massively photoshopped to shimmer and toner you all hooo & haaa over them; ‘your own’ comes out in half of what their counterparts do, you spit, scream, kick & bite hate ( & most times it just unadulterated jealousy). Like you all don’t go out for photo shoots…has anyone killed you for it?

    I know we’ll all know what is called marketing strategy (i.e selling point) that’s what is on display above, the same way singing lewd lyrics is the order of the day.

    Ironically, we see most of you haters at parties looking like clash of water color has just broken out on your face, one color racing to catch up with the other, lines crossings swords over each other looking like a hideous clown!

    Keep hating o! she will definitely make her money from you all as you will in your hatred still rush to buy her album…CAUGHT YA! hahaha…
